Days Two – Four – in and around Bournemouth
Over our three days in Bournemouth we will go on two excursions. We travel through the New Forest to the city of Portsmouth, here there is a chance to see famous ships such as HMS Victory and the Mary Rose. We’ll also visit the city of Salisbury, with a chance to visit the famous Cathedral, which has been an incredibly important place through English History and is home to the Magna Carta. The other day in Bournemouth will be for you to enjoy at leisure. The town has a beautiful beach which stretches for miles and the whole seafront area is fantastically well kept. From our hotel there’s easy access to the train station and from there the surrounding coastline is only a short train ride away. (B,D)

Stay right on the seafront in the beautiful area of Westcliff just a short walk from the beach with an onsite refreshing swimming pool and scenic sun terrace to unwind after a busy day by the sea.
From here, the walk along the seafront is stunning, with golden beaches leading to one of the most fashionable areas of the entire country, the community of Sandbanks. Here you will find fantastic bars and restaurants which is also the case just 5 or ten minutes away from the hotel on the other side in central Bournemouth.
For lovers of the outdoors, staying in Bournemouth really gives you everything, especially for those who are willing to venture a little way out of the town. A number of beautiful areas are available just a short distance away by both car and public transport; these include Cranbourne Chase, the Jurassic Coast and the New Forest among many others.
Inside our pretty Edwardian Hotel and its grounds you can enjoy a game of Croquet on wide lawns, relax on the sun terrace or chill out in the pool. In the restaurant you can enjoy fantastic and varied menus daily for breakfast and evening meals and snacks and drinks are served throughout the day on the sun terrace.
Full Day: New Forest and Portsmouth
Our sightseeing takes us to the tranquil New Forest to see the ancient woodlands, wilderness heaths and pretty villages - we may even spot one of the ponies! It's then on to the maritime city of Portsmouth where highlights include the historic docks, with legendary ships HMS Victory and The Mary Rose. A trip up Spinnaker tower is a fantastic vantage point to see not only Portsmouth but the wider South Coast as well.
Excursion to the interesting medieval city of Salisbury, the town's highlight is undoubtedly the Cathedral, with Britain’s tallest spire and housing an original version of the Magna Carta. Just outside the city, easily accessed by bus is Old Sarum, the original settlement here and a fascinating insight into the ancient history of the region.
